Abstract

Behavioral scientists have long sought to capture how individuals’ understandings, perceptions and beliefs affect their decisions, often through examining the underlying cognitive processes that drive action (Schendel & Hofer, 1979). Economists, for example, are interested in how individuals’ utility functions influence their actions. Marketing researchers investigate how consumers’ preferences are reflected in their purchase behaviors. Organization researchers examine individual characteristics that influence outcomes such as job satisfaction, promotion, and turnover (Aiman-Smith et al., 2002).

Abstract

Purpose

This study investigates the relationship between buyer-supplier top management team (TMT) demographic misalignment (defined as differences in TMT composition based on background, age and gender) and environmental performance (EVP).

Design/methodology/approach

The empirical setting is publicly held US manufacturing firms that are present in both the Kinder, Lydenberg and Domini’s (KLD's) annual EVP ratings and Bloomberg's supply chain database. The study employs panel data regression methods on an unbalanced panel dataset of 7,493 dyad-year observations comprising 427 unique firms.

Findings

The research shows that misalignment in functional background and gender composition between TMTs have a negative outcome on both the buyer's and the suppliers' EVP. However, increasing presence of females across TMTs has a positive influence on EVP. Further, the research shows that misalignment based on age between the TMTs does not impact EVP in any significant way. On the contrary, increasing age across TMTs is a significant predictor of EVP.

Originality/value

This study builds on existing works in TMT heterogeneity and adds context to the heightening belief in the positive linkage between heterogeneity and performance through extension to a boundary spanning interfirm context.

Abstract

Past entrepreneurship research has emphasized the importance of the context of the entrepreneur (e.g., personality) along with environmental characteristics as predictors of the success of new ventures. Additional literature has expanded our understanding of how implementation processes such as business planning, social networking, and external financing may be key to new venture performance. This paper offers 12 propositions that link these two literatures. Specifically, we argue that the personality and goals of the entrepreneur, as well as the dynamism and munificence of the environment, may affect how well implementation processes enhance new venture performance.

Abstract

This tenth volume in the series Advances in Entrepreneurship, Firm Emergence, and Growth focuses on entrepreneurial strategic processes. Papers related to strategic processes in entrepreneurship have been a recurring feature of the Advances series, starting with the second volume, which included Slevin and Covin's (1995) article of record on entrepreneurial strategic behavior, as well as process-related strategy articles by Carsrud and Kruerger (1995) and Bloodgood, Sapienza, and Carsrud (1995). Subsequent explorations included Volume 7's material on corporate entrepreneurship, Fernhaber and McDougall's (2005) work on strategic adaptation in Volume 8, as well as Salvato, Lassini, and Wiklund's (2006) acquisition process model and Samuelsson's innovative-imitative process comparison in Volume 9. Common to all of these has been the central intent of the strategy approach: the pursuit of organizational success.
